The Grinnell Science Project (GSP) addresses acclimation to college life, non-traditional learning styles, and a lack of mentoring and role models. GSP creates a “web of mentoring” that encourages not only traditional mentoring of students by their teachers but also student-to-student and faculty-to-faculty relationships. GSP has been used as a model by a number of institutions of higher education, including Bowdoin College and Brown University.
